Farewell and Welcome

Those who have been reading my blog since it started last year knows that I have a hamster neighbour Bibi who lived in a cage above me. I'm very sad to tell you doggies that Bibi passed away on 31 Jan 2007. I didn't blog about it at that time because I really didn't want to make you doggies sad. But the family have come to terms with it now and thinks that we should say a proper farewell to Bibi. And being a good hamster, we believe that Bibi would be in hamster heaven with lots of other friends and is happy now. I'll miss you Bibi, thank you for your companionship~

Last week, one of Eil's colleage gave her a pair of hamsters when he heard that there's only old me left.

(aren't they cute drinking water)

But being a practical person, mama didn't want a billion hammies to come out from this pair of hammies. And there isn't a snip snip operation available for little hamster boys. So, we could only pick one of them to stay with us.

(Girl girl with stuff friend)

So we pick...... the girl hamster and mama and Eil can't think of any cute name to call her and so they have been calling her Girl girl (that's so... original). The boy hammie have been returned to the original owner so we know that he's been well taken care of too.

Girl girl is really full of energy, see this little clip of her. She just can't stop moving about, she looks cute washing her face too. Everydoggie, say Hi to girl girl my new sister hammie. :)

Hi FuFu,

Can you play with Girl Girl, or is she as "fierce" as BiBi?

Jazz and Dixie said...

Hi Fufu,
Sorry to hear about BiBi. But I'm sure as you said she is in hamster heaven.
Good news though about your new sister. How exciting! Is she sharing your cage with you or does she have her own pad?

Welcome Girl Girl! Fufu has lots of friends so don't be jealous. If you are as fun as Fufu, you can have lots of friends too.

Fu Fu: We are all so very sorry to hear about Bibi! I know it has to be so hard for you and your family! (And we sure understand about not wanting to post it right away!)
I can't wait to get to know your new sister! Once you spend more time with her, the right name will come out. That's what happened with us. Will you let her guest blog sometimes?

Oh Fufu, I'm so sorry to hear about poor Bibi! I liked his antics and lazy ways :) I'm sure he's in hamster heaven right now looking down on you.

We'll be looking forward to your stories about little Girl girl. I'm sure she will be a good companion to you.


Tadpole said...

Aw Fufu, I'm so sorry to hear about Bibi - what a special hammie. He's watching you from hammie heaven, so be nice to Girl Girl!

Quinvale AstaLaVista Baby said...

G'day FuFu,
I'm sorry to hear about Bibi, but happy that you have a new friend called Girl Girl. Will she get a blog too? Sometimes my mum calls me Girly girl. xxx Asta

Charlie Kelley-Church said...

Sorry to hear about BiBi. I know she awaits everyone at the Rainbow Bridge. I think your new sister is cute but if she is a girl, doesn't she have to be in a different cage for the same reason you couldn't take the other Hamster? Be sure and keep us posted. Oh- and don't let her drive the FuFu mobile or spaceship until she is old enough to drive!


Maddie & Frankie said...

Fu Fu,
We are so sorry to read about BiBi,
and for sure she is in hammie heaven!
Big welcomes to the new addition
Girl Girl. How fun to have a new sis! Can't wait to see and hear more new hammie tails!

Fu Fu,

Sorrys to hear about the passin' of Bibi. We know how hard it is when a family member passes aways. It takes a long long times to come to terms.

I think Girl Girl's name should be GiGi, as in the great musical GiGI of 1958. It is such a nice soundin' word, with the soft Gs. Or it could be Hammie.

What's wrong with a billion hammies? Arf! Arf!



Chelsea said...

Girl girl is very.....girlie. Mama loves her.

I am sorry about Bibi, that is sad.


Butchy & Snickers said...

Oh FuFu,
We're so sorry to hear about poor Bibi. RIP dear Bibi.....

We are happy to hear that you have a new playmate though. Girl Girl is cute. What kind of hamster is she?? She is different than you right?
That was so kind of Eli's friend to give her the hamsters. Too bad they can't snip little boy hamsters like doggies. We look forward to hearing more about Girl Girl in your posts!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Joey said...

Sorry to hear that BiBi has gone to the other side. But glad that you have a new 'girlfriend'!

Luckie the Dachie said...

Hey Fufu,
I'm sorry to hear about Bibi but like what you say, it's farewell & welcome so life goes on right?
Girl girl is very hyper!! She looks like she's been eating tons of sugar - so full of energy. hehe

PerfectTosca said...

Aw Fu, I'm sorry about Bibi. Bibi is with the Big Hamster in the Sky now.

Hui Min said...

i am sorry to hear about Bibi, i was wondering why there hasn't been any post about her for so long.

heh Fee Fi Fu Fum, get another two hammies and name them one of these :)

she's so cute, do you get to play together? :)


Anonymous said...

Sorry to hear about Bibi. I think Bibi and Joy the guinea pig are running around together now though. I think Fifi would be a cute name for your new sister.

Sunshade said...

Oh no...... I'm sorry about Bibi... you guys did such a great job guarding during X-mas when we went to see Santa (and I, of course, fell asleep so I don't recall...)

Anyway, Girl Girl sure is cute, is she your gf?

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Holly said...

I'm so sorry to hear about Bibi! How sad for you. I'm glad you have a new friend now to keep you company. Although, she looks like she is a bit high strung and might need to lay off the caffeine! :)


Marvin The Dog said...

Fu Fu! So sad about Bibi!

But I am glad you have a new friend!

love and sad licks Marvin who is late with his comments - sorry!

Charlie said...

Fu Fu, we're very sad to hear that Bibi passed away. He's surely gone to hamster heaven!

You'll have to be a good big brother to Girl Girl and teach her how to play with all your cool toys.

Joe Stains said...

BLU and Comet said...

Fufu, We are sorry to hear about Bibi, but glad that you like your new sister. Does she know you are a boy or did you have to show her your private bits too? :-)

ps. My girl drooled over the bibimbap. She thought it looked yummy.
